It's not actually something I would usually make, but I'm sure a pink, purple and dog-loving little girl will think it's fabulous!
As you can see, I'm currently quilting it. here are close-ups of the two sides.
Here is the Queen's coronation in 1953, and Mum has printed off two slogans about rationing ending in 1954 and Princess Anne's birth in 1950, and used them as part of the blocks at the side.On this side is the conquest of Mount Everest in 1953, with slogans about Roger Bannister's one minute mile and the first dog in space.
Considering both Mum and Dad are in their 80s, it's not bad going at all, I say!
